In the next star I beheld a Texas ranch which seemed to stretch for miles on every
side. Well in the foreground I saw a large and comfortable house with dainty flowerbeds
and neat graveled walks all about it. On the long, shady veranda, with a book lying open
beside her, hands folded idly and a farfaway, dreamy expression in her large brown eyes,
sat our own Angela, the "baby" of our class. Sweet and peaceful as ever she looked, and
happy, too, though the dreamy eyes held a look of longing. She was thinking of dear H. A.
Again a large room! This one, though, was all white and still. Rows of beds lined
the walls. As I looked, a nurse quietly and gently turned away from one of the beds. It
was Marion Zimmerman! Lucky the patient who had her to soothe his pain-our gentle,
I next saw two bright, happyflooking stars close together. Little white cottages with
merry children romping on the trim lawns caught my eye. Under a shady oak beside one of
the cottages sat Helen Sella and Delia Keating, both looking serenely happy.
Another office! This time I saw Helen Seuferling working rapidly. Helen had decided
to conquer the business world, and she would do so or no one ever would.
Listen! Sweet strains of music are filling the air. I glance quickly at the next star and
therein is unfolded before my eager gaze a large and wellffilled music hall. On the stage
stands a slight and graceful figure. Surely I have seen those dark, soulful eyes before. There
is a moment's breathless pause and then a world of melody flows from those parted lips.
Yes, it is Claire-our Claire of H. A. days. Glancing at the bulletin which is displayed
near the stage I see that she has become a worldffamed prima donna, the most successful
contralto singer the world has ever known as well as a pianist of great repute. Well, we all
foretold that, when she was in our midst, so my surprise is not so great, after all.
But where was my own star? A tiny, friendly star suddenly twirled round and seemed
to wink, "Here I am. just come and catch me." Delighted with my study of the stars of
Holy Angels' Class of '28, yet disappointed at not seeing the center of my own particular
Ztar, I turned to hand my telescope to the little man who all this while had stood quietly
eside me. '
After a friendly chat of a few moments we walked over to where a bright moonbeam
was streaming through one of the windows. At his bidding I sat down upon it and-
alas for Senior dignity !-went sliding right down to my own little bed. Just as I reached
it I heard a scream, and awoke to ind myself under the bed with my roommate looking for

no wonder she looked familiar! It was none other than our dear Class President, Eleanor
Hennessy, well known for her executive ability.
The star next to hers seemed very quiet. This was soon accounted for, however, for
there I saw Helen Oliva, Latin book in hand, at a desk in the front of a large classroom.
I realized that Helen's dream was to come true and that she was to be a Latin teacher.
The next little scene was in direct contrast to the previous one. This star was
spinning violently on one point and seemed enveloped in a cloud of smoke. Finally, it came
to rest, and through the drifting smoke I beheld Alice Decker. Around her lay a confusion
of bottles, beakers, test tubes, flasks, and glasses of various sorts and sizes. In her hands were
the tags of two bottles which by this time were in bottle heaven. The tags read "Tetranif
trotoluene" and "Tetranitroaniline." I realized that she had dared to attempt their
reaction to heat, and the wonder was that anything was left of Alice. I understood that
she was to be a famous chemist, that her schoolfday desire was to be fulhlled.
I looked eagerly at the neighboring star. It presented an oflice scene. There was a
desk with a card on which I read, "Miss Mary Farrell, Private Secretary." So my dearest
friend, through her quiet, diligent manner and attractive personality was to win fame in
the business world.
My! what a hubbub! Was it a battle? Sticks were being knocked about in all direc'
tions. Of course! Why had I failed to recognize it at once? It was a game of hockey. And
who was associated with hockey? No one but Loretta Trainor, to be sure. There she was
in her sport outfit, surrounded by her victorious team. Victorious as usual! Who could
defeat Letty at that game? Was it to be her vocation or her avocation? The star did not
answer me in words, but I surmised that physical culture was to claim her in its rank of
teachers, though she had always told us that she aspired to be an ordinary "schoolfma'am."
The next star held a large, wellffurnished library stacked with books. There at a desk
by a sunny window sat a young lady buried in a book and oblivious to all around her fit
seemed to be just past noon and patrons of the library apparently had not yet begun to
appearj. There was something strangely familiar in that slender figure at the desk. Ah,
yes, of course! How could I be so stupid. It was none other than May Peley, happy and
contented, for she was now a librarian as she had always wished to be.
Another beautiful building! What was it? Oh, the sign read, "Mademoiselle Grace
Christ's Fashionable School for Girls." Focusing my telescopefdiploma, I peeked in at a
large window. There stood dear Grace, surrounded by a group of darling children. Who
was better Btted to teach them, not only lessons of bookfknowledge but also of grace, of
kindness, and of love?
Again a hall! But oh, it looked familiar! It was our own H. A. gym. Hither and
thither in the midst of an exciting basketball game ran Irene Dowling, referee. I knew that
Irene had returned to her Alma Mater as gym teacher.
But there wasn't any star in the next place. Looking about I saw it balanced daintily
on the tip of the crescent moon. And there beneath it was Inez Cavinato, poised in the
curve of the moon, paintbrush in one hand and pallette in the other, working at her
masterpiece. She paused and drew back to scan her work. As pretty as the picture on her
canvas she looked, with her head tilted sideways and one slender arm swinging gracefully
down in the silvery light.
Right beside her sat Edith Haas, our own "Dedee," who between little spasms of
delight was deftly charcoaling Inez's profile on her paper. So she, too, was to follow an
